Arrived here on my own with an incredibly warm welcome from the staff. As I had no plans for the weekend Luba and max offered to take me out for dinner where they showed me the local townships and the amazing culture. The next morning Luba dropped us off at a nice restaurant for breakfast then later returned and gave... More

It was comfortable staying at these lodgings, i was only there a short time but everything was ok, i would suggest they heat the spa pool for people to use early in the day as it takes a good 5 hours to heat & in winter is good to have.

The warm reception and assistance was awesome as I arrived late in the evening. My room was beautiful, it felt like I was in a five star hotel. I slept super comfortable with the beach humming softly in the background. The showers, reception and rooms in general are amazingly clean. I loved my over night stay here, it was worth... More

Judging from past reviews I wasn’t sure what to expect at Island Vibe. I travel often but would not describe myself as a backpacker type person having “been there done that” in years past. I found the rooms to be very comfortable and well appointed for the price. The living areas are good. Theirs a big tv lounge and dining... More

Island Vibe Port Elizabeth is almost like staying in a home rather than a typical backpackers - although with a bit more style and fun. There is an indoor waterfall that I enjoyed reading next to. There is also a hot tub that was great fun in the evening and a lovely pool in the back to enjoy in the... More

On walking distance to Port Elizabeth prettiest beaches you can find Island Vibe’s amazing beach lodge. Not too big and with an amazing vibe. The private rooms are pretty and clean, the beds are good and there is a big kitchen area to cook nice dinners. After a day of awesome activities or sightseeing in the area you can choose... More

Port Elizabeth has some of the loveliest city beaches in South Africa. We had a great time walking down the boardwalk and then headed to the lighthouse for a educational history of the area. The backpackers itself is nice and clean with very helpful staff. The swimming pool and Jacuzzi and a must for hot summer days. All round a... More

Very nice and clean place. We stayed there only one night but the room was very clean and comfortable, no problem with credit card. As we stay there only for a night I cannot say more details about that place but I recommend it and I would stay there again.

Island Vibe was welcoming from the outset. We booked a double room en suite which was clean, spacious with adequate storage for clothes. The reception team were very helpful and were able to book activities for our three day stay. We made good use of the mountain bike hire (hour/half day/day). SAMREC, local mall, beachfront bars and the casino complex... More
